Description: FGF 8 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 194 amino acids and having a total molecular mass of 22.5kDa.

Protein Derived From: Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance: Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Purity: Greater than 97.0% as determined by analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Stability: Lyophilized FGF 8 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18?C. Upon reconstitution FGF 8 should be stored at 4?C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18?C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Biological Activity: The ED50, as determined by its ability to induce proliferation of mouse 3T3 fibroblasts, is 5-7ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 2x105units/mg.

Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized FGF 8 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
